A strong global community for change
Envision a world where resources are sustainably and fairly distributed. Everyone has a chance for a healthy and happy life. No one suffers from hunger, or is forced to leave their home. The actions of each individual make up the collective process of change towards this vision. We all contribute to a strong global community so needed in 2016, when the hard work of implementing the new Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate agreement must begin.
Earth Day is an opportunity to connect with a global community to celebrate this living Earth. As a contribution to Earth Day 2016, the Global Soil Forum from the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies launched its Golden Grounds campaign with a song, music video, and animated infographics about strategies for a sustainable future.

Soil Strategies for Social Justice and Climate Change Action
Join the Soil and Land Network for Change
Making change happen towards a shared vision of sustainable soil management and responsible land governance requires the concerted effort of many different actors from local to global.
Better Save Soil
Both political initiatives and local actions are necessary to secure the access to food and livelihoods for everyone. Measures for sustainable agriculture are already at hand, but they are often not applied – both on a small and large scale. And even if most of us live in cities, we all can do our part in saving soils all over the world.
